Hand spinning tuition from my wool workshop just outside the Exmoor town of Wiveliscome.
Join me to explore natural fibres and learn to spin fleeces from our flock of rare breed sheep.
Using an Ashford spinning wheel, learn to spin, ply and finish your very own yarn. We will also explore plant fibres and learn about the sheep breeds and sustainability.
- Learn to choose the right fleece for your project
- Carding and combing
- Spinning with an Ashford traditional spinning wheel
- Learn about different spinning styles
- Plying and finishing your yarn to take home
- Opportunity to visit the HoneyWoods Flock and learn about their care
Workshops are 10am to 4pm with a break for lunch.
One on one tuition (£200) or group workshops of up to four people (£150 each) are available. You can choose from the drop down box - one on one tuition can be on a date that suits you. If you have two or three people wanting to come together you are welcome to find a date for your group at the lower price.
All tools and equipment, fleeces and tea/coffee are included.
I also offer one day improvers sessions if you want to focus on long draw, or improving your spinning and learning more theory. Get in touch if you're interested in this!
